Catfish the TV Show: Episode 5: Baby Catfish? Recap

Source: MTV

Tonight Nev enlists his final co-host guest to help him crack the catfish case. Actor, Alex Shaffer joined Nev tonight to help him. If you're tired of all the guest co-host, worry not, Max will be back next episode!

A young woman, Chitara, wrote in to find out who broke up with her. She met a girl named Priscilla, over a website and hit it off. They dated online for six months talking over the phone for hours. Every time Chitara tried to webcam or meet up with her, Priscilla made up an excuse. Over a month ago she said she was no longer in love with her and broke it off. Chitara still wants to find out the reasons why Priscilla claimed she was never in love with her, and meet her.

Nev and Alex meet up with Chitara in person just to talk to her before they hit the Internet do their research. Nev and Alex search Priscilla's pictures but get no results. They look up the website where Chitara met Priscilla. They find another account using Priscilla's supposed pictures. They look up this girl and find her all over the web and they find a lot of fake profiles for this girl's photos.

Nev and Alex head down to a arcade to meet Chitara to meet her and her friends. They get to know her friends who basically have her back. Then they take Chitara to the side and show her their research. Chitara doesn't seem surprised by the fact that whoever is behind the Priscilla account is most likely a fake. She still wants to gain closure and discover who the person is behind all this, since she still is in love with her.

Nev texts Priscilla in hopes that she'll reply back. The next day Nev and Alex meet Chitara at her house. They tell her the best way to get ahold of Priscilla is probably by calling her on the phone.

Priscilla says she's moved on and doesn't want to meet up. After enough convincing that Chitara needs this in order to move on, Priscilla decides she'll meet up with them. They drive up to Priscilla's house and knock on the door. This girl named Ashanti rolls out. Her name ain't Priscilla...This girl is only 18 by the way. (4 years younger than Chitara)

Awkward, much?

Chitara wants to know why she lied to her in the first place. Ashanti assumed Chitara knew that she was a catfish after she broke it off with her. The two girls end up getting in an explicit argument and separate to cool down.

Me, during this entire episode.
"Really, though?"

Nev goes to talk to Ashanti on his own. She's been using this profile since she was 13, well damn. All the family tragedies she told Chitara were false. Typical. I felt like this whole thing was a joke to her. Very immature if you ask me.

The next day they have a sit down at a cafe to have a civil discussion and get down to the roots of why Ashanti did this. According to Ashanti she really did have feelings for Chitara even though she lied and said she didn't. Basically, like most catfish, Ashanti made these profiles to escape her reality and become someone else online.



#BBCAN3 Premiere Night & Eviction Night Recap!

Source: Global

Finally, after the long wait, we finally got to see the premiere night BBCAN3! This year the house was themed "Steampunk." I really like the decor and feel to the house it makes the US house's decor/themes toll in comparison.

Source: Global

The houseguests entered the house and were quick to discover that there was no furniture inside the house. The bedrooms were locked and their belongings were nowhere to be found. Big Brother forced the house to learn that Big Brother is in control, and they must earn their keep inside the house by earning their luxuries into the house. Dang.


Source: Global

The next twist was explained that there would be no HOH competition and instead the entire house would be HOH. One by one each houseguest was whisked away to cast their two votes on whom they wanted to nominate. It was especially hard since after only a few minutes of making their introductions, they would be getting blood on their hands.

It came down to Risa and Sindy being put up for eviction. I was sad to see Risa up there. I think she didn't give the best impression to most of the houseguests. She comes off as dressing very provocative, as well as holding confidence in her appearance. I think some of the girls were threatened by that along with the boys. As for Sindy, I think she just came across too self absorbed and potentially dangerous in the game. 

The POV challenge was introduced. Naeha, Sindy, Risha, Kevin and Bobby played in the POV competition. It looked like Kevin was going to win the POV but Sindy snuck up and ended up winning. As always she chose to take herself off the block. Arisa explained that now that Sindy removed herself from the block, she would now have to chose a replacement nominee. Orginally when Sindy has casted her two votes she had chosen Pilar, so she stayed true to her original vote and set Pilar up for her replacement.

Now, Risa and Pilar would be facing eviction. Little did the house know that the houseguest would have no say in who they wanted to evict. Instead, Canada would be the one making the final decision. 

On tonight's episode, the house dealt with having no furniture and living on slop as their food source. It was a struggle and people were already starting to lose it in the house. Then, Arisa made an announcement. The houseguest would be able to earn the furniture and their personal belongings if they won a task.

Their task was to hold up five giant red balloons for a duration of five hours. Inside each ballon was a number that would unlock a secret vault to receive their belongings. 

The houseguest's belongings tucked away in a secret safe.

If the ballon touched the floor or popped they would have to start over again. The houseguests rotated turns holding up these giant red balloons in the backyard.

Kevin, was called to the diary room and giving a secret task that he could choose to do or opt out of. 

Source: Global

Big Brother offered him $1,000 if he would sabotage their balloon challenge. He would have to secretly pop one of the balloons causing them to fail or choose to not follow through. Being the poker player he is, Kevin decided to do the task and sabotage one of the balloons the houseguests had been holding for over 2 hours. He hid an earring in his hand and popped the balloon was pretending to volunteer to hold it. Now he successfully has $1,000 and none of the houseguests know about it, or do they?


Source: Global

Sarah and Brittnee had a secret discussion about the balloon popping in the bathroom. Both were convinced that Kevin had somehow purposely popped that balloon. They don't trust him and may be onto him. 

Finally after countless hours the house succeeded in holding up all five balloons for 5 hours. 


Source: Global

Now, the house had to deal with the tricky five combinations to unlock their belongings. With the five numbers they received from inside the balloons they had to crack the combination. It was another tedious task and after a frustratingly long amount of time Zack and Jordan finally cracked the code!

Now the house had 45 mins to set up all the furniture in coordinated areas of the house. If they didn't succeed, they would be punished!


Source: Global


Now it was finally time to finally reveal who would be going home tonight. Arisa appeared and dropped the bomb on the house, telling them that no one would be casting their vote for eviction. Instead, Canada had already made the decision. 


Source: Global

Risha and Pilar were each given an envelope to open. One of the envelopes would hold a card that read either: "SAFE" or "EVICTED." The two girls opened the card and Risha was the one to hold the dreaded "EVICTED" card. 

You had one job, Canada...

Arisa made a hint though that Risha may be able to win her way back in the house. Instead of going home, Risha would be going back into sequester. The first five houseguests would be able to compete to win their way back into the house! 

Next, it was time to find the new HOH and guess what. It's an endurance competition.



The houseguest have to hold themselves up for as long as possible. The first eight to drop will be competing in the have & have not competition. Meanwhile, the last one to remain will be our new and first HOH!

Who do you think will win? Personally, I think it'll be a girl since endurance competitions are ideally won by females. Leave your predictions in the comments!

The Walking Dead: Episode 515 "Try" Review & Recap

"Try"

After the tragic and gruesome death of Noah, what more could possibly go wrong for our characters in the Walking Dead? We find out on tonight's episode. Deanna and her family mourn the loss of Aiden. They stay indoors and play a mix tape of presumingly Aiden's favorite songs. Which by the way, I wasn't really fond of Aiden's choice of music. It was quite irritating if you ask me.

Meanwhile, Carol whips up some tuna noodle casserole as a peace offering for Deanna's family. While she waits for it to cook,  she tries to think of a good message to leave for Deanna and her family on a notecard. Sam has paid her a visit again and watches her from the window. Don't start acting like Eugene now, Sam...

Source: AMC

Sasha is still dealing with her grief by staying in the watch tower. She watches the wall and takes out any walkers closing in on the wall.

Deanna hears a knock on her door and finds the tuna noodle casserole Carol had left for them. She leaves Carol's peach offering and heads back inside with the handwritten note in hand. Despite how angry you, why anyone would waste perfectly good food is beyond me. She burns the note and watches it deteriorate in front of her. I'm pretty sure she's done with Rick's group.

Source: AMC

Far from Alexandria, Daryl and Aaron are still scouting for more survivors. It seems they haven't had much luck as they have no new recruits with them. They stand in a field at night and see a fire in the distance. There are survivors close by, but the question is, are these survivors sane potential residents? Or will they be dangerous ones? (E.g: Cannibals, Marauders, rapists, etc?)

~END TEASER~

Deanna watches back a recorded tape of Nicolas' account of their attack at the warehouse. In his video he lies about how the events really went down. What a jerk off. He claims in his video that Glenn wanted to leave Aiden behind, when in reality it was Nicolas who wanted to bail on his friend. Meanwhile, Glen also tells Rick of his accounts and how it REALLY went down. Deanna finishes watching his interview and is left with her doubts on Rick's group. She already had Judas, oh I mean, Father Gabriel whispering lies in her ear. She doesn't know who to believe after her son's death.

Rick tells Glen that these people do not know what they are doing. He stills wants to take over the community and run it under his rule. Glen tells Rick not to give up on these people. Noah had faith in this community and they should to.

Carol and Rick meet and discuss their findings. Carol gives Rick more information that there is proof that Sam's dad beats on his mother. Apparently Sam spilled the beans on what happens when his Dad loses his cool. Carol has compassion and understand for Jessie since she went through the same thing herself in her past life. She also knows Rick fancies Jessie and wants him to help her.

Pete stumbles across Rick while he's on duty. Pete tries to talk to Rick but Rick isn't giving him the time of day. He tells him to keep walking. Rick is pretty much on edge at this point with Pete. Pete keep walking, buddy.

Rosita tells Michonne that Sasha was in the tower all night, but now she's missing. Tara has been stabilized for now, but she isn't doing well. Pete is still working on her to keep her alive. I don't want to see Tara die, she's awesome! Rosita and Michonne go out to look for Sasha before she does something stupid.

Deanna stands at the graves of the fallen people of Alexandria. She's visiting Aiden's grave when Rick stops by to visit her. He wants to notify her with their problem with Pete. Apparently, Deanna already was aware that Pete has been beating his wife, but keeps him around because he is a surgeon. Rick wants to separate Pete from his wife to keep him from hurting Jessie. Rick suggests the idea of killing Pete but Deanna isn't up for that option.

Source: AMC

Michonne and Rosita stumble across a trail of recently killed walkers. They know they're getting close to Sasha. They realize that Sasha is hunting walkers as a mechanism to get over her grief.

Source: AMC

Carl is also outside the wall and has been tailing Enid to find out what she's up to. She knows he's following her and allows him to tag along. He warns her that she shouldn't sneak out since two people have recently died. She knows and says he shouldn't be fazed by that since people die all the time. She also tells him that he scares her, but that's only because both she and Carl have lived it out on the road before and have potential for making huge moves. 

Source: AMC

Source: AMC

Glenn visits Nicolas and tells him that he is responsible for those five lives. He tells him that if it wasn't for those walls then he'd be dead. People like Nicolas don't make it very long in that world if they're not safe behind these walls. He warns him that if he makes a move like that again then it could be the end of him.

While Carl and Enid, continue to run around outside the walls, they hear a small herd of walkers approaching. They hid inside a tree before the walkers spot them. They share a moment where it looks like they might potentially kiss, but Carl pulls back. His hand grazes hers holding her knife. In this inclosure Enid could easily take out Carl if she wanted and no one would know. Enid laughs quietly at him. "You're scared of me, too," she notes. 

Source: AMC

Rosita and Michonne finally catch up to Sasha. She's still taking out walkers like nothing but looks disappointed to see the two girls have caught up to her. She doesn't want their sympathy or their help. They try to convince her to go back to camp, but a large herd is approaching. They are forced to take out the walkers by hand, or by gun. Girl power!

Source: AMC

Source: AMC

After they shoot all the walkers, Sasha confesses, that she feels guilty for telling Noah that he wouldn't make it in this world, shortly after he perished. Sasha needs some help, ASAP. If she continues to be reckless she will get herself killed or someone else killed.

Source: AMC

Daryl and Aaron stumble across a dissembled walker. They've seen this work done before as they've traveled to Washington, but only recently have they really paid attention to these signs. Someone really likes to mess with walkers. They continue through the woods a find a naked woman strung to a tree. Her guts are ripped out. Someone left her there for walker bait. They lift her head up and she has a "W" craved in her head. Whoever this group is are some sick individuals.

Source: AMC

Source: AMC

Rick visits Jessie to confront her straight out about how Pete is hurting her. He tells her it needs to stop but Jessie seems surprised that Rick has caught onto it. Jessie convinces Rick that he doesn't need to step in and help. She claims she can take care of it herself.

Source: AMC

Rick tells Jessie that he can keep she and her boys safe if she just says yes. She asks if he would do this for someone else, and he says no. I thinks he flattered by the fact that he wants to keep her safe. She finally caves and asks for his help. Just then, Pete comes home and sees the two of them together. He tells Rick that he needs to leave and you can see his anger building, but Jessie says no. She tells Pete to leave instead.

Source: AMC

Pete screams for Rick to leave but Rick tries to remain compose and calmly ask him to step out with him. Instead Pete throws a punch and Rick, and Rick is forced to fight back. The fight escalates just like it happened in the comics.

Source: AMC

Source: AMC

The fight continues out onto the streets and both men are equally out of it as they fight. They block out everything and everyone around them and wrestle on the streets. Carl tries to pull his dad off but Rick shoves him back. Jessie tries to pry Pete from Rick but he punches her. Finally Deanna is able to break through to Rick and force them to stop. Rick goes on a tangent of everything that these people do wrong. 

Source: AMC

Source: AMC

His rambling tirade is cut short when Michonne puts and end to the mayhem.

Overall it was a decent episode. I'd probably give it a 7/10. I'm looking forward to finding out who this group is that's craving the "W's" into the walkers foreheads. They're called "The Wolves" but what's their motive? When will we meet Negan? Is Rick going to be exiled from Alexandria for going too far? Will we finally see Morgan in the finale? So many questions, hopefully they'll be answered in the 90 minute season finale!

"News from Mary Queen of Scots?" Uh, oh.

Mary and Louis are still keeping their relationship in secret by sneaking around the castle. They meet in the church where Mary pretends to go and pray. 

With Kenna and Bash, their relationship is still on the rocks. Sebastian is planning to leave court for a while after discovering Kenna considered taking up Antoine's offer. Kenna is remorseful over hurting Bash and wants to mend their relationship. Sebastian is convinced that he is not the man for Kenna and he leaves.

Catherine catches onto Mary's secret rendezvous with Louis. She notices that Mary has visited the church four times that week at the same time every day. She sends off one of her spies to keep watch over Mary and to report back to her. 

Source: TheCW

Louis meets up with one of the English's agents to discuss his proposal to Elizabeth. It seems Louis is trying to cover all his bases in case his engagements with Mary don't pull through. What the hell, man? The agent makes it adamant that Louis sail to England with him, so Elizabeth can see what he looks like before she accepts him as her consort. Louis tries to stall his commitment by asking to send her his portrait. The envoy is not down for that plan. He wants Elizabeth to see him in person so she can make her final decision. 

Mary meets up with Louis again and tells him that her letters were found by the English. It has her seal on it and she's worried the news is going to get back to England. She won't be able to sail for Scotland if the English know she is heading back. An attack could be made and she could perish before she ever gets close to Scotland.

Narcisse wakes up with Claude in his bed. He doesn't remember going to bed with her, but apparently she snuck in to sleep with him. Amused by her charades he makes her leave and is onto her scheming. He knows she is just doing this to piss her mother off since Catherine and he have grown closer.

"Get out of my chambers."
Source: TheCW

Greer and Leith are pursuing their new relationship. Leith wants Greer to get divorced or get an annulment so they can get married. Unfortunately, it isn't that simple and Greer is still married in the eyes of God. She wants to remain with Leith, but she doesn't have the funds to get an annulment.

Francis meets with Sebastian in the stables as he's preparing to leave. He urges him not to leave, but Sebastian wants to get anyway. He needs to keep his mind off Kenna and focus on his duties as deputy.

Francis sees Mary to let her know that his mother is onto her. He scolds her for being careless and not more discreet as he had hoped. He tells her that's she free to be with Louis but he can't promise he'll be able to keep her safe from his mother's vengeance.

Louis and Mary discuss their secret relationship. Louis admits that he had been meeting with an English envoy in consideration to marry Elizabeth. Mary is hurt and feels betrayed by his confession. She doesn't like the fact that he is bouncing between these two ideas. She has opened her heart to him and she feels she cannot trust him.


Source: TheCW

Lola meets Mary outside. She confides in Lola that she feels trapped and alone at French court. Mary tells Lola about Louis entertaining the idea of being Elizabeth's consort. Lola points out that if Louis were to deny Elizabeth's hand that Louis would be a target by England. She explains he is probably only entertaining this idea to cover his bases for his safety.

Catherine enlists Leith as a personal body guard to Claude. She wants Leith to keep her from sleeping with any nobles. Leith believes he is just going to have to protect her, but Catherine insists that if keeping her busy means sleeping with her then he needs to. This is not good for Leith after he and Greer confessed their love for one another. Claude is infuriated her mother has given her a babysitter until she lays eyes on Leith. She is intrigued by Leith's appearance. (She's definitely thirsty.)

By the end of the episode Francis passes out. Catherine flocks to his side and can see he is gravely ill. She calls for help. Turns out Nostradamus' prediction was right. Francis would be doomed to die with his union with Mary.

Francis is not looking good...


Like I said in another post. Pretty sure Francis is going to die. It's bound to happen since it happened in history, and it'll probably happen before the end of season 2.

Catfish The TV Show: Episode 4: Flakey Catfish, Anyone?

This week, Nev enlists the help of the fabulous Youtube sensation Tyler Oakley! Slaaay, Tyler.

Source: tumblr

Daisy met Marcus over Instagram and had an instant connection. She has never spoken to Marcus over the phone, but has only communicated through texts. Instantly both Nev and Tyler see red flags and the possibility of Marcus even being a guy could be slim. Marcus is a video producer and doesn't webcam or talk on the phone, what the heck??

Daisy knows the circumstances are strange but she wants answers!

Source: MTV

Nev and Tyler meet up with Daisy in person to get to know her and do some investigation. They learn a little bit of Daisy's tragic family history. Her sister died in a car accident and her dad had an aneurysm and a stroke and died. Really sad. :( Basically, Marcus has been the one person that Daisy has been able to depend on and confide in.

Meet Marcus.
Source: MTV

Daisy confessed to spending at least $2,000 on Marcus and she's never even spoken or seen him? What the hell? Daisy looked up Marcus' phone number and found a ladies name registered to his number. Red flag, girl.

Source: MTV

Nev and Tyler head back to the hotel to crack down on researching Marcus. First, they search up Marcus' phone number. They get a hit and it's registered to someone named Sandra. There are two other family members related to the registered woman. It's Marcus and his brother, William. Strange thing though, is that this phone number comes up as a home phone, not a mobile. They look up Sandra on people smart and get a hit. They figure out that Sandra is Marcus' mom. They look up his profile and discover he's 25.

Source: MTV

Something clicks with Nev, and instantly they realize Marcus' Instagram account is real and so is Marcus. But when Daisy posted her phone number on Marcus' photo some rando snatched her number before it was deleted from his post, and pretended to be Marcus using all the information he provided online. 

What the fuck?
Source: Giphy

Nev and Tyler come to the conclusion, that it could either be Marcus' mom. Whoa...Or Marcus' brother... Scandal, though!

Source: MTV

Nev and Tyler meet up with Daisy and her family to tell her what they found out. They discover from Daisy's mom that apparently Daisy hasn't been very truthful. Her mom was the one that has actually been paying for the gifts she sent to Marcus. Damn...awkward. And she hasn't paid her mother back for all the gifts she sent to this "Marcus."

Daisy's Mom
Source: MTV

They sit Daisy down and reveal all the things they found out about Marcus. They question that if this really is Marcus then what is he hiding making him refuse to talk on the phone or show himself on video. Nev decides to call up Marcus to confront him and get him to meet up. Nev tries to call up Marcus, but of course he doesn't answer. Typical. Luckily though they have the address that Daisy sent all of Marcus' gifts to. They plan to just show up there and stalk Marcus down. LOL.

Later that night, Nev receives a text message from Marcus. He says he doesn't really want to expose himself on TV. The next day when they head to the airport Nev receives a phone call from Marcus and the voice is a dude's! He finally decides he'll meet up with them. Then after they've arrived Marcus calls up again and he's changed his mind again. He does not want to meet up anymore. Make up your mind, sir! 

Third time, Nev gets another text message. Marcus has decided he wants to meet up again. Will he keep his promise this time or back out last second like a flakey ass motherfucker. They head to a location to meet him. Finally, after an hour of waiting Marcus shows up. He says, "We're here." What do you mean, "We're, bitch?" Who the fuck is with you?"

You sketchy, motherfucker...
Source: Giphy

He rolls up, and what the hell? It's actually him! I honestly did not expect Marcus to be well, Marcus. I figured some horrendous human being will appear. No offense. It's always weird when the actually person is really who they say they are. 

Hey, I'm Marcus.
 Source: MTV

His reason for not talking on the phone? He prefers texting than talking on the phone. Really? That shit pissed me off. He couldn't even burden himself with buying a friggin' birthday card, come on cheap ass. Apparently he's just really shy, like ridiculously shy.

Source: MTV

Marcus and Daisy have some alone time and Marcus drops the bombshell. I want to be friends. #Friendzoned Surprisingly, Daisy is okay with but wants to continue to stay in touch with him. It was a nice ending. They're still friends but they haven't taken the next step to boyfriend and girlfriend.
